    I am not in a place where I can contribute a whole bunch to the cause right now. But if I can help out in some other way, Im happy. The new farm keeps getting pushed back due to "real life" situations. But its coming. I promise. :toast:

    Dammit Tim, It's the 2nd time I've slacked with you dude, f**k! First I forgot to ship something out to you, what was it, I can't remember.

    Now I forget to check for the stick of RAM :(.

    Updated the list.

    Its not that homemade. Just leftover bubble wrap, spare cardboard cut up, a paperbag, and the last of my packing tape :D The way I have been shipping lately makes me feel like I am prepping for gift wrapping XMAS gifts :laugh:

    Yes sir. Shes a beauty. Has performed flawlessly for me while I had it. On a nice board it will perform even better. It will serve pos well. :toast:

    @ pos.... do you need a cooler? I have a new Athlon II cooler sitting here not being used.

    I don't need a cooler i have a Xiggy S1283 in a box someplace and a Tt v1 floating around someplace and i also think i have a stock AII HSF :laugh:
    thanks for the offer :toast:

    as for the board part.. It will be going in my old Gigabyte Nforce 430 board(yes it supports it) it maybe old but it clocks nice and works flawless and will be replaced with a board that can unlock it when i get some $$

    Hey CP, it would be nice if you can clear my old requests, now im in need of an AM2/AM2+ board to exchange the dead biostar in my X2 rig... there is a whole system just waiting to crunch, thats the only part missing.

    Also, nearly any mediocre 65nm 775 cpu would be great, so i could exchange that weak e2140 in my newest cruncher someday
    thanks for any help, guys! :)

    it has been an amazing board best $110-ish i ever spent on hardware
    it supports all 95w Phenom II based chips. I don't understand why 125w won't work when the older 90nm chips sucked 125w and it supports them. :confused:
    gigabyte has done an amazing job keeping it updated for it's age (bought in mid 07)

    do you remember seeing my overclocks on the X2 240 and 250? I used that board to do them (they both reached 4+ghz)

    The board lacks dual power plane, maybe thats the cause? The NB component of the CPU has an enhanced draw on these cpus maybe, which would overload conventional PWMs

    I never thought about the NB being on the chip vs the older ones. but none the less it is still an amazing board for it's age and price paid as for bios support the latest bios was released "2010/08/30" that is alittle over a month ago (it is 2010/7/10 at time of posting)
    just because this is going to bother me i have to put the dates in the "correct" format
    08/30/2010(time of release) 10/07/2010(time of posting)

    This is why i am one for recommending Gigabyte so much. They make quality boards and back them with good bios support but there driver support isn't there at all BUT that isn't a problem as you can find the latest Nvidia and Realtek drivers easily.
    Also there customer support isn't half bad. I have dealt with them a couple times when i was having some issues with my board and they helped me out faster then i thought it would be. (took ~2days of emailing tech support to get problem resolved)
